I don't expect to get a perfectly silent pc when I switch to wc as I can also see where the limitations of this case are. But as I like this case and I'd like to once again have a wc'd pc, I'm willing to settle for some compromises smile.gif
Limitations with this case only lie in your imagination 240 rad front 360 rad front @ 60 mm including fans 110 mm fit with a bit of effort brian white put one in the floor and then you can fit a 120 or 140 rad in the back with also a bit of thought so endless just look outside the square.

Anyone with a water loop put a dual 80mm rad below? I'm considering it, just getting the tubing routing would be difficult.

Someone on here had pictures of one, not sure they ever mounted it or not. It was a couple 5-6 pages back by now probably. I've long considered one since my pump is right there anyways.

Seems to me like the best use of that space and mounting holes. There's 2 really nice ones on frozencpu.com one of which is pretty thick. Not much airflow down there but it is close to the video cards, perhaps the first heat dump from them would be in that small rad.

How much clearance do you have w/ top mounted fan(s) and large cpu coolers? (ie ~170-175mm tall).

Went ahead and grabbed a better camera. Previous pictures looked really bad.

I think there was someone who said their cm hyper 212 didn't fit with a 200mm fan up top, I could be wrong though.

It was me. Not even close to fitting.

I added the Corsair H60 and it works like a charm. I also moved the fans from outside of the case in the front grill to the inside, which seems to have helped a little bit and I also have lowered the speed of the fans in the tuning utility for my mobo.

I plan this weekend to take out the white fan in the exhaust with a Corsair SP120 and I might even place the 2 fans back outside the grill since I have lowered the fan speeds which might not be too bad.

I just need to tidy up some of those cables in the front a little bit.





For those that bought the top window panel, are you liking it so far?
